I’ll be part of the launch team for Kit Kelen‘s new bilingual (Esperanto/English) poetry collection and painting exhibition November 27th at the Shop Gallery in Glebe, 112 Glebe Point Road at 2pm.
Rompitaj Labirintoj / Bung Mazes brings word and image together, in an abstract meditation on the situation of refugees in the world today.
A bung maze is what the asylum seeker must negotiate in order to find a new home in an unknown place. These pictures and poems offer a largely abstract meditation on the situation of the refugee.
My job is to conduct a roaming/creative conversation throughout (you’ll have to come along to see what kinds of surprise questions I will be coming up with to keep things interesting!). Kit and friends will be making music to accompany the proceedings. I don’t plan on singing at this stage but you never know.
